Wishlist Wed: Ignoring the Real

Wishlist Wed: Ignoring the Real
You know who loves shopping?
This girl.
You know who is completely broke?
THIS girl.
The sad truth has come to light, I make up countless outfits using items that are way out of my budget (some of my recent daydreams include this and this) but I recently found a solution to this horrible way of self destruction.
Splurge vs. Save options!
Take a gander at the options above, the cheaper items aren’t that different than the expensive version.  For a college girl who loves clothes too much for her own good, this is like a gift sent from heaven.
Research into the item you want and try to find a dupe, no one will ever know the difference :]

wishlist wed: summer whites

wishlist wed: summer whites

happy first day of summer!

Eventhough I will always be an advocate for an all black outfit, I must admit that wearing dark colors during these months makes me sweat (literally).  So for todays wishlist I focused on whites, and whats even better is that these pieces can be worn during any season.

wishlist wed: summer jewels

summer jewels

accessories are crucial during the summer, because unlike clothing, they don’t cause much discomfort in the sun.  invest in colorful pieces that can take your outfit to another level, and remember to have fun with them!

Wishlist Wed: Summer Sandal

TMSF: Summer Sandal

 Although these ankle strap sandals look a little painful, I can’t get them out of my head!  I was over the moon when Steve Madden introduced the nude sandals (top right), they are a pretty close match to the Giuseppe ones.
For ladies with shorter legs (aka me), try looking for thin ankle straps as they prevent making your legs look stumpy.

Wishlist Wed-Mint

WIshlist Wed-Mint
Happy Wednesday!  Sorry for dropping off of the face of the earth there, the week leading up to spring break was super stressful and quite honestly, there was no time nor energy put into my outfits.  I know, I know…blasphemy!  But my outfits weren’t anything jaw dropping so y’all didn’t miss out on much :]
With Sungano and I embarking on our 30×30 journey on this upcoming Monday, we will not be shopping during those 30 days.  Hopefully I can get my hands on something mint colored before because it is a hot (or I guess pastel) color for Spring!

Wishlist Wed-Spring Time Shopping

Wishlist Wed-Spring Time
      Even with the weather being unpredictable, I cannot stop thinking about shopping for spring time!  But my shopping trip must be delayed until April because the 30×30 challenge is coming up for March!  Not to worry, the deets will be discussed later.
       I love that a trend for this spring is going to be colorful and playful bottoms.  Personally, I am waiting for the coral-y colored AE jeans to go on sale, and I’m on the look out for cheaper versions of the floral print jeans.  Flats, espadrilles or heels, you name it!  This spring I plan to expand my collection of shoes, and move into brighter footwear.  Spring in Arizona is when you know to get prepared for summer, and I plan to enter summer in breezy dresses, long or short.  But isn’t that romper amaze as well?
What do you want for Spring?
